-4 +8 -16 +32 -64 +128 Next number in this sequence is 184

56. The difference between one term and the next is -2 x the previous difference. 88 to 120 is +32, so the next term is 120 - 64 = 56

The next number in the sequence 100,96,104,88,120,56 is 184.The pattern is minus 4, plus 8, minus 16, plus 32, minus 64, plus 128

184

The sequence is formed from two interwoven series. 440, 216, 104, 48 ........Halve the number and subtract 4. 260, 128, 62, 29...........Halve the number and subtract 2. The next number would be generated by the first series 48/2 = 24 24 - 4 = 20..........which is the next number.

104

There is no reason to write 104 as a mixed number, but...100 and thirty two eighths.

One possible answer is 494. This uses the cubic function (-29x3 + 256x2 - 401x + 218)/2

184 * 100 to 96, subtract 4 * 96 to 104, add 8 * 104 to 88, subtract 16 * 88 to 120, add 32 * 120 to 56, subtract 64 * 56 to 184, add 128 See the pattern here? you alternate subtraction and addition in between each two numbers and double the value to add or subtract each time.
